How to Start a Local Chapter of Citizens for Affordable Energy
Congratulations! Starting a local chapter of Citizens for Affordable Energy is an exciting way to develop your interest in energy!
One of the first things you need to understand is that starting a chapter takes work. Are you willing to put in about 5 to 10 hours a week? It might not always be easy but running a chapter can be great! Lots of people are going to benefit from your time, dedication, and planning to make your chapter a success. Fortunately, the start-up costs are very low!
What you need to do to start a local chapter:
- Your chapter will need three officers:a President, a Secretary, and a Treasurer
- Members of your chapter must be members of the national Citizens for Affordable Energy
- Some chapters collect dues from their members to help with costs.
- Provide the national office with a list of your members (you may e-mail this), and a yearly financial statement.
Here is what the national office of Citizens for Affordable Energy can do for you:
- An official charter that will link your chapter with the CFAE national organization.
- Guidelines and rules that can help you run your organization.
- We can help you get you a good place to hold your meetings! We will contact any university, museum, or other institution you want so we can try and get you a regular meeting place.
- "How To" tips on running your chapter
- Contact information for all members in your area
- Publication of your chapter’s activities and news on our webpage.
- As Citizens for Affordable Energy continues to grow and other chapters are founded near your area, we will help you connect with these chapters so that you can all share resources.
Please think carefully about starting a local chapter. Remember that you will need to spend five to ten hours a week every week to have a well-run chapter. You will be our representative in your area and your chapter will reflect on the national organization.
